Study of the wood of Acanthosyris, Jodina, and Myoschilos confirmed a close relationship between Santalaceae and Olacaceae. Features important for defining the three genera and for determining relationships between them and with Schoepfia, which belongs to Olacaceae, are reported for the first time: vestured vessel walls, unilaterally compound pits, perforated ray cells, and druses.
